Shot this rather unique looking moth in the Catchment area today. Note the serrated wing edges.

Species ID?

Ha! I recognise this one. Shot before by Johnny Wee here (http://b-pals.com/forums/showthread.php?t=4000).

Erebus ephesperis according to Roger. This is the most pristine shot I've seen of this species so far, Horace. :thumbsup: Must've just eclosed somewhere nearby. It usually bashes itself silly when startled, crashing through the undergrowth and camouflaging itself against dead leaves and twigs.

Thanks, Khew for the quick ID reply. :)
